I don’t know what to say about the baseball game I just watched, other than it was sublime. From a fundamental and aesthetic standpoint it was ugly as hell, but as a competition it was sublime. I know now other word to describe what I saw.
I’ll write more about the game tomorrow. I need to process it. Need my head to stop spinning.
So I’ll leave you this evening with two videos. One is from 1991, the other is from tonight.
The first features Jack Buck’s famous “And we’ll see you tomorrow night!” call on Kirby Puckett’s home run. The second features his son saying the same words on David Freese’s home run tonight.
I’ve said a lot of disparaging things about Joe Buck. Not tonight. That was awesome, and frankly it was the absolute perfect way for a game like this to end.
Jack Buck, 1991 World Series, Game 6
Joe Buck, 2011 World Series, Game 6
What an awesome, awesome moment.
I don’t often find myself on the save wavelength as Buck in big sportin...

An email exchange very early this morning, regarding Joe Buck's "We will see you tomorrow night" call: More »
Kirby Puckett sends the 1991 World Series to Game 7 by launching this home run in the bottom of the 11th inning. Jack Buck.
Last night, Joe Buck ended Game 6 with the same line. The douchejuices at...

Notice anything similar between these two videos? It’s a great call. I’m on the fence about whether or not I should get on Joe for not being original. Let’s face it; sons want to be like their dad. I’m cool with it. I like Jack Buck’s call better.
Joe Buck capped off last nights crazy game 6 by paying tribute to his father, Jack
Buck, by calmly saluting the viewers with the same, "We will see you
tomorrow night" call, which is considered by many as one of the best in
all of baseball.
Jack's call was of Kirby Puckett's home run in 1991, which forced a game seven between the Twins and Braves...
Joe Buck punctuated the Cardinals’ game-ending home run in Game 6 on Thursday with the same line his father, Jack, used to call Kirby Puckett’s winning homer in the 1991 Series.
For Major League Baseball, FOX and announcer Joe Buck, score the 2011 World Series and indeed the playoffs as the equivalent of a triple play -- the year where in TV terms, almost everything broke their way.
From the regular season's wild finish -- St. Louis' improbable run, Boston's historic collapse -- through the World Series' first Game 7 since 2002, the baseball...
"In the air to left, well hit. Back is Craig. WHAT a team. WHAT
a ride. The Cardinals are world champs in 2011.''
Sorry I had to steal Hall of Fame broadcaster Jack Buck's call when the St. Louis Cardinals won the 1982 World Series.Riding the momentum from Game 6 the Cardinals took Game 7 6-2. Until it gets pulled here's the final out of Game 7. (Thanks Fox Sports)Here's the celebration on the field. (Thanks KSDK-TV)World Series MVP David Freese stops by to chat with KSDK's Rene Knott.
Joe Buck is the subject of a lot of scorn among baseball watchers, but he did something awfully cool to put the proper finishing note on a Game 6 for the ages.
As David Freese's ball was sailing over the center field fence, Buck stole a line from his father Jack and told us that he's see us all tomorrow night. That's the same call Jack Buck gave when Kirby Puckett forced...
MINNEAPOLIS—Fox play-by-play announcer Joe Buck claimed to be overwhelmed with feelings of inadequacy, betrayal, and grief Sunday after catching color commentator Troy Aikman covering the Packers-Vikings game with another man.
With FOX broadcaster Joe Buck echoing his father's well-known call by saying, "We will see you tomorrow night," after the Cardinals' epic 10-9 win over the Rangers in Game 6 of the World Series on Thursday, it conjured memories of the Twins' win in similar fashion over the Braves in Game 6 of the 1991 World Series.
And to top it off, Joe Buck calls the HR just like his father did in the '91 World Series. Impossibly great moment.
